NP-Active Pearls

Has anyone used these and if so how do you feel about them? I was given a free bottle after getting some corals and a reactor today

Love them. They work great in my reef dynamics reactor. I have a wet/ dry trickle filter with bioballs and this cleans up the phos and nitrates that are left over from that. Takes a while to notice it but it works great if you control the flow.

Currently using a used unknown skimmer but has done great over the last 8 months. I plan on upgrading to a eshopps or octopus in a couple.months though. Currently working on finishing touches in my sump with reactors and such so figured id leave the skimmer for last since its just an upgrade

ok, well the better the skimmer the better results you see from the pellets. The dust needs to be efficiently removed. Ive seen those specific pellets used at my LFS and their tank seemed to be doing quite well, but that about all I can say about those specific ones.

Ya i haven't had an issue with the dust it seems to be staying trapped in the reactor. I've got them tumbling very lightly just enough to keep them all in motion.
